Hello, I am planning on taking my GDSA exam beta in two weeks, has anyone taken it yet? how did you feel about the exam and any tips ?

What does Exam Certification objectives mean. This is my first sans exam.

Thank you

    . This is my first sans (GIAC) exam.

    Thank you
    Hello Friend,

    Based on the GIAC website, the exam isn't even available yet: 
    https://www.giac.org/certification/defensible-security-architecture-gdsa

    To add to the irony of your story/question, nobody has taken the exam yet. It's 0 certified GDSA professionals. https://www.giac.org/certified-professionals/directory/gdsa

    I think I am going to change my name to TechExams Police because I keep policing up these posts  :D 

    What I will say is that if you google -building a SANS index- you'll find tips on how to prepare for your exam. The index will be beneficial in helping you make comprehensive notes, that should overall limit your need to flip through the books. 

    Read and attempt to understand the books and topics and you'll more than likely be alright. 

      I don't think I have ever looked at the exam objectives for a GIAC exam but here you go:

    You're right that there are 0 GDSA certified folks because they haven't released the GDSA Beta exam results who have taken it. Guess what though? Once they've finally release the GDSA to the public, there will be at least 1 GDSA on day one of the certification release.

    Ok, it went from 0 to (at least) 50 people who have the certification. 

    I am looking for a review and some news?  :#
